Preauthorize Your Monthly Giving

To give by direct debit on the 20th of every month sign-up for Pre-authorized Remittance (PAR)

WHAT IS PAR?

PAR, or Pre-Authorized Remittance, is a direct debit program that allows people to support their church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from their bank account.

HOW DOES PAR WORK?

NOTE: If you choose to debit your credit card monthly (instead of your bank account), the PAR administrator may phone you for the "secret number" on the back of your credit card. DO NOT write your secret number on the form.

HOW DO I CHOOSE AN AMOUNT?

PAR will direct debit the same amount every month until you contact the Envelop Secretary to change it.

There are two main approaches:

  1. Choose your target giving for the year and divide by 12.
  2. Choose your target for a week and multiply by 4.33 (52 weeks / 12 months = 4.33).

There is no minimum or maximum amount which can be given.

WHY SIGN-UP FOR PAR?

By giving regularly to our church family you help nurture our congregation, support our church home, and teach our children and young people about Christ. You support people in our community through our mission and outreach programs.
